The community of Bopiliao was firstly formed back in early Qing Dynasty. Since then, its history evolves as Taiwan went through different eras, from Qing Dynasty, Japanese colonization, to early Post World War II period. Situated in one of the most prosperous areas, Mengjia, architecture in Bopiliao reflects different culture of which it was built. The area is uniquely representative of once flourishing Mengjia.
In 2009, Taipei City government finished the repairing process of Bopiliao Historic Block, and opened it up to the public. It stands in WanHua District, continuing the over-a-hundred-year legacy, shown through arching verandas and red-brown brick walls. These old buildings witnessed the development of Mengjia and now have become a cultural and educational landmark. Their existence showcases local culture and history to the visitors, and the buildings still serve practical purpose as to hold art exhibitions.
